AOTD: Allah-Las - Allah-Las
AOTD: Allah-Las - Allah-Las

Allah-Las
Allah-Las
Innovative Leisure, 2012

Allah-Las is one of the year's most enjoyable collections of three-minute guitar pop songs, with a dozen strikingly taut tracks that lovingly revive the cherished hallmarks of late-sixties rock: chiming guitars, mild psychedelic edges and folk inflections. What's most surprising about Allah-Las is that, despite their consistency in production value and fairly traditional songwriting approach, they manage to remain compelling throughout and dodge accusations of "all their songs sound the same." From the classic melody and structure of "Sandy" to the instrumental "Ela Navega", each cut seems crafted with a vintage hook-first mentality that never seems to go out of style.
